Spring/Summer collection 2020 (SS20 Collection)
For SS20 Far Afield showcase their latest collection, ‘White Island’, a contemporary menswear collection where the brand takes inspiration from the Balearic Islands, and more specifically Ibiza.
Using a balmy, earthy & breezy Mediterranean color palette the collection takes a chronological look at Ibiza through the modern ages; juxtaposing the rural life of 1960’s to the evolution of dance culture in the mid-late 80’s.
Print inspiration across the shirting, t-shirts and swimshorts comes from all directions. There is a nod to the free loving hippy and flower power culture; a setting amongst the cactus trees, nature & fruit trees; village life and skinny dipping alongside the flamingos of Ses Salines. All the while the reverberation of the calm calling of the deep blue that surrounds the island.
Old archival material focusing on the club and dance culture that evolved from the late 70’s onwards was extensively researched. Playful and subtle references throughout the collection can be noted.
Lightweight tailoring, and vintage inspired knitwear meet textured cottons and colourful poplins. Collars are button-down or open.
Garments are finished to the highest standard, using the best yarns and woven fabrics and with select usage of organic cotton. Recycled plastic bottles provide base fabric on all swimwear pieces, in line with our commitment to sustainability and ethical trading.
Lightweight cottons, linens, twills, & pure cottons make this the perfect spring/summer collection for the year 2020.
